Launching 2023: Silencer Central Banish 46 Suppressor

Whether you call it a silencer or a suppressor (they're both correct), its best-in-class noise reduction will be most welcome.

posted on January 19, 2023

Do you call it a silencer or a suppressor? Both are correct; the device's inventor, Hiram Maxim, called it a "silencer." These days, most people call them suppressors because they don't exactly silence the sound of gunfire--just reduce it. Whatever you call it, Silencer Central is undoubtedly a master of the technology! This year, Silencer Central introduced the Banish 46 suppressor, which offers best-in-class noise reduction. How much noise? More than 34 decibels (dB) in its long-form configuration. Compare that to the noise reduction typically offered by traditional earmuffs (22-25 dB), and you'll see ... ahem ... hear the difference right away.

The Banish 46 was created in particular to reduce the report and recoil from straight-walled hunting cartridges. Designed for use with a wide assortment of rifle calibers including .338 Lapua up to the .45-70 Government as well as pistol calibers, this silencer retails for $1,249. Purchasing is easier than ever before with the Silencer Central method. The company is licensed to operate in all the U.S. states where suppressors are currently legal. As such Silencer Central manages the licensing process from the start to the end to deliver the product right to your door.
